Halton Food for Thought COVID-19 Update

Halton Food for Thought COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Together! We Feed Students!

Students arrive at school hungry every day. Food insecurity is real, right here in Halton.

School based food programs help ensure our students have access to the nourishment they need.

COVID -19 related school closures and summer months mean Halton students who normally rely on student focused food programs no longer have access to healthy food.

COVID -19 related business closures and layoffs mean our parents and families are experiencing income uncertainty, for some to levels never-before reached, for others for the first time.

Access to nutritious food for our student families has never been more important than right now, which is why we have one more Summer Food Box run to make!  It is also why the HFFT Team is busy working on plans to ensure our students are supported for their return to studies this fall, no matter what that may look like.  Our hearts go out to individuals and families during these unprecedented times.

Online donations are needed immediately and can be made HERE.

Thank you for the role we all play in helping to ensure the health, well-being and ultimately the success of our students and families.
